Somerset House Summer Series with DBN Gogo

Sommerset House Summer Series - DBN Gogo


The Somerset House Summer Series with American Express returns in July 2024, offering eleven nights of unmissable gigs in the intimate and immersive setting of the spectacular Somerset House courtyard. This staple summer experience promises a trailblazing lineup of breakthrough music artists and established acts from across the globe.

Kicking off the Summer Series is none other than South African Amapiano DJ and producer DBN Gogo. Known for her electrifying performances and boundary-breaking presence, DBN Gogo, whose real name is Mandisa Radebe, has taken the music world by storm since her standout appearances on the Channel O Lockdown House Party and Quarantunes Live Sessions in 2020. These performances catapulted her to fame, making her one of the most talked-about DJs in South Africa and a leading figure for women in the industry.

DBN Gogo’s debut album, *What’s Real*, is a testament to her talent and vision. The album is a collection of soulful, spiritual, and dancefloor-rooted anthems that pay tribute to her heritage. It features collaborations with emerging Amapiano stars like Stixx, DJ Stopper, EltonK, and Nvcho, all signed to her label, Zikode Records, alongside established artists such as Boohle, Felo Le Tee, and Mellow & Sleazy.

On a mission to take Amapiano global, DBN Gogo has made significant strides in promoting diversity and inclusivity in music. She curated a nine-day Boiler Room event in Johannesburg, spotlighting a variety of voices and sounds within the genre. Her influence has reached international heights, with a feature on the Times Square billboard in New York, a performance at Wireless, and contributions to the *Black Panther: Wakanda Forever* album.

DBN Gogo’s live performances are a sight to behold. Her sets are known for their infectious electric energy, turning any crowd into a dancing frenzy. Each performance is a no-holds-barred experience, reflecting her joyful and unstoppable spirit.

Amapiano is a genre that’s always evolving, constantly giving birth to new subgenres and influencing dancefloors worldwide. DBN Gogo embodies this dynamic spirit, bringing the pulse of Amapiano to a global audience.

Get yourself along to the Somerset House Summer Series and immerse yourself in the magic of Yanos with DBN Gogo, Mellow & Sleazy, Mixolis, Nicky Summers and dance crew Slow Poison. Experience the evolution of Amapiano firsthand and be part of a summer event that promises to be unforgettable.
